    Thanks a lot for your help, Nick!!
    I'm going to buy them then
    These will be my first Edelweiss objects I acquire to my collection. Is it hard in your opinion to find a Funke & Brunninghaus made badge?

    Metal cap badge is post WWII.
    Originals have a straight stem the one pictured is current type with hooked end on stem.

    Steve, Bundeswehr are totally different, the end of the stem points the opposite way like this;

    Ooops need to put my bi-focals on
    My mind is not on what I am doing.
    My wife would argue that there is a good possibility that I do not have one.
    She constantly questions my sanity.
    When I tell her what I paid for a German item she will ask "Are You Crazy ?".

    Ok, thanks!
    It's a really nice collection you've got there, Steve!

    To clear things out, this is a WWII cap badge, right?
